Waiting on Wednesday: Of Silver and Beasts by Trisha Wolfe

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "I-can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Of Silver and Beasts
by Trisha Wolfe

Goodreads Summary:
In the sand-covered queendom of Cavan, the goddess once saved a young Kaliope’s life, preventing the mercury her father attempted to hide in her blood from reaching her heart. Now, a cybernetic clamp filters it,
but the silver streaks swirling faintly beneath her skin are a constant reminder that she’s different.

When nineteen-year-old Kaliope is chosen as head of the Nactue Guard, she becomes the sworn protector to her empress. In the midst of an invasion on a neighboring land, Kaliope is placed in charge of guarding Prince Caben, the last heir to his kingdom. But when they’re attacked by the feared Otherworlders, Caben and Kaliope are abducted and taken below to a realm where they must fight for their life in a caged arena.

Kaliope struggles to protect her princely charge, keeping him and herself alive while battling inhumanly opponents, and trying to save the stolen, sacred relic that will restore her empress’s life force and all of Cavan. And if she can somehow awaken the goddess within her, she may save what’s most important.

New Adult Dark Fantasy: Intended for readers 17 years of age and older.

Why I'm Waiting...
Okay, I have a confession to make. I've gotten a sneak peek at this book and it's ah-mazing. I love it. I can't wait for its release so everyone can see what a truly talented author Trisha is (as if we all don't know that already). This book has everything--kickass heroine, sexy guy, romance, secrets, mystery, sexy guy -- oh, I said that already. Yeah, well, when you read about Caben, you'll understand why he gets two mentions.

There's only one thing I don't like about the book. Life. It keeps getting in the way and I can't sneak in enough free time to read and it's taking me much longer to finish the book than I'd like. I want to know the ending NOW! But then I'll have to wait for the sequel to get my Caben fix, so maybe I'll draw out OSAB a little longer. :)

I'll be giving my full review on "Of Silver and Beasts" later. But in the meantime, take my word for it and add it to your Goodreads TBR list. You don't want to miss out on this one!

What are you waiting on?
